Carry Courage strives to be a brand committed to transparency in all areas. We care about making our Earth a better place for the next generation and celebrate every material we can source that sustains this purpose.
Cork Fabric is harvested from the cork oak tree, and ours comes from sustainable forests with strict harvesting regulations to protect this resource and regulate its quality.
The Cork Oak is the only tree that benefits from the removal of its bark, which regenerates every 8-10 years. Once harvested, the tree absorbs about 5 times the CO2, making harvesting cork bark important in reducing greenhouse gasses.
Our cork fabrics are PETA-approved vegan, sourced from Portugal and we love how durable and soft they are.
Our 100% vegan leather is polyurethane-based, avoiding the harmful effects of the animal leather industry and toxic plastic-based PVC leather.
Polyurethane-based leather is made by coating natural fabrics like cotton or polyester, then treating it to look like real leather. This type of vegan leather is more soft, flexible, and breathable than vinyl-based leather.
Linen is a natural plant based fiber that will biodegrade after it is discarded making it an eco-friendly option. Linen is made using the entire flax plant and doesn’t require the use of pesticides.
Our natural linen lining fabrics are sourced from a family-owned United States supplier that has been in business for nearly 100 years.
To be considered 100% GOTS-certified organic, our cotton has to go through a very strict approval process.
The certifier has approved every step in the process from the farming of cotton to the finished goods. The process covers the how the cotton is grown, how the cotton is transported, how it is milled, how it is bleached, the ink used to print, and notably our mill must meet a standard of fair working conditions. At the end of the process a certificate is provided to ensure that all of these standards have been met and approved.
